Up coming IRRC force Nadieh Schoots is eyeing up a maiden TT Races campaign in 2019, as part of planned future roads endeavours which also include returning to the Ulster Grand Prix.
The 2017 International Road Racing Championship which marked her first full season of roads competition, yielded highly creditable results in abundance.
14th in the final championship standings, some of the main highlights for the enthusiastic Dutch racer included series of top 12 finishes at Frohburg, plus scoring strong results at Schleizer Dreieck and Horice.

Set to sample again the IRRC in 2018, Nadieh is targeting next year an overall top ten finish in the rapidly growing in popularity series.
An ambitious racer, she has the potential over the next few years to begin to push many of the championship stalwarts for top draw results.
Realistic in how long it will take till she can battle alongside the likes of Johan Fredriks, Sebastien Le Grelle and Marek Cerveny, Nadieh and her own teams progress next season, will be monitored closely by many as she continues to build up her pure roads experience.
